Banks have adjusted the stamp duty charges on electronic and other taxable transactions with effect from February 1, 2020.

This is in furtherance of the implementation of the new Finance Act recently signed by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

In a notification to its customers, the banks said the Tax Identification Number would only be required to open or operate business accounts.

Access Bank stated that while the old bill stipulated five per cent Value Added Tax, it explained that the new Act stipulated 7.5 per cent.
